Lacrosse - 2005

REBECCA SCANLON graduated from Corning West High in 1997. She was instrumental in convincing the C­PP School Board into  approving  girls lacrosse  as  a  varsity sport. After  attending school  board meetings for two years, the Board finally adopted the idea and Rebecca became a member of the inaugural girls lacrosse team at West High. She served  as team  co­captain  and was the leading scorer with  49  points. Following  graduation from West, Rebecca attended the University of Buffalo where she was a member of the women's lacrosse club team. She served as team vice­president as she scheduled practices, games and travel arrangements. Rebecca then was awarded a lacrosse scholarship to Canisius College. While at Canisius, Rebeccea was selected as the Most Valuable Offensive Player in 2001 and was the team's leading scorer as a senior. In her two years at Canisius, she finished her career as the second all­time leading scorer, second in goals scored, third all­time in assists and sixth all­time in ground balls. Also during her high school career, Rebecca was a key member of the Lady Viking volleyball and softball teams.
